If set photos from the filming of Jessica Jones Season 2 are anything to go by, it looks like the Defender has found love with a new man. There’s no denying the incredible success that Marvel Television has found in its home on Netflix. Bringing the Defenders of Marvel Comics to the small screen - with Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist sitting alongside Jessica Jones on the streaming service - has led to some of the MCU's most praised stories.
Led by Krysten Ritter, Jessica Jones’ first season is an oft-cited highlight of the collection. Having enjoyed a short-lived stint as a superhero, Jessica was back to her roots as a private investigator, but it didn’t take long for trouble to come knocking in the form of the villainous Kilgrave (David Tennant). Though she was at times distracted by the goings-on in her personal life, she kept New York City safe from Kilgrave’s threat whilst enjoying an on-off romance with fellow super-human, Luke Cage. Now another relationship has been teased.
Set photos from the currently-in-production Season 2 of Jessica Jones have emerged on Tumblr that show Ritter in role locking lips with an unknown man. Check them out at the link below.
Aside from the romance element, the pictures also show Jones once again out of her iconic leather jacket in favor of a more casual look. Whether the change is going to be one that runs throughout the sophomore season remains to be seen. Of course, one alternate explanation to all this is that we're actually seeing a flashback rather than a modern day event; this would certainly explain Jones' rather happy demeanor.
Whatever the case may be, Jessica Jones Season 2 is shaping up to be every bit as enthralling as the show’s first outing. We will, of course, first catch up with Jones alongside her fellow three heroes of New York a little later this year in The Defenders.
Jessica Jones Season 2 is expected to debut on Netflix at some point in 2018. The Defenders premieres on August 18, with The Punisher’s solo outing also set for release this year. New seasons of Daredevil and Luke Cage have also been scheduled for a 2018 release. Jessica Jones Season 1, Daredevil Season 1 and 2, Luke Cage Season 1 and Iron Fist Season 1 are available now.
